want to state we're not here trying to undermine funding for sandy, needed for sandy. some of the things the house did i think are legitimate in terms of saying let's set aside unrelated matters. it doesn't mean we cast them into the dust bin never to be seen again. it simply means let's let those that are not emergency situations be more carefully examined in terms of whether we need that. and if someone does come to the floor, as senator lee is going to do, is my understanding, and offers a potential offset, let's at least look at that possibility. the debt clock is ticking and ticking ever faster. and it is destroying the hopes and dreams of future generations. and i think we have a moral responsibility to at least be as conscious and effective with dealing with the taxpayers' dollars in terms of how they're spent, whether it's an emergency supplemental related to a disaster or whether it's just a normal appropriation that comes along every year through our appropriations process. we haven't exercised that kind of discipline, and our country is going to pay a very seriou
? yes criminals by definition break the law. what we experienced in sandy hook, did they break the law? of course they broke the law. these 500 individuals who were killed in chicago, they're breaking the law. is one more law, i don't care if you named it james' law, i don't want it. >> megyn: wow. the first we've heard from one of the newtown parents with an opinion like that, we've seen parents come out in favor of gun control, but this is a new and different voice in the chorus. the hearing in hartford is still going on and we're monitoring it and we're going to run mark matoli's remarks as least at this point. and the one saying he thinks it's badly lacking in america today and how it can help prevent future incidents like sandy hook. we're going to run that for you at 1:30 and we're going to have a fair and balanced debate where this goes from here after you listen to mark matioli upcoming. a story in milwaukee also getting attention today as a sheriff there says calling 911 is no longer your best option and he's urging folks in his county to learn how to handle a firearm. coming
. president obama called for lawmakers to renew the ban after the massacre at sandy hook in newtown, connecticut. senator feinstein says the issue is also very personal for her. remember, she became mayor of san francisco in 1978 after a gunman shot and killed the mayor at city hall. >> once you have been through one of these episodes, once yous like, it isn't like the movies. it changes your view of weapons, i think. >> shepard: the assault weapons ban expired almost a decade ago and tonight a spokesman for the nra says there is no need to renew it because gun bans do not work. >>> shannon bream live in d.c what would this new bill do exactly. >> it would ban the sale, manufacture, transfer and importation of 157 specific guns, along with a broader group of other guns that would meet a new lower threshold for classifying a firearm as an assault weapon. there would be numerous bans on various high capacity magazines and beefed up background checks on the sale and transfer of all assault weapons. vice president joe biden said today assault weapons aren't necessary for personal prote
put it in the supplemental bill for sandy. and guess what? the house republicans stripped it out and didn't put it in their version of the sandy bill. so even today, after we know what happened, the republicans are still not willing to give her the resources to protect our diplomats abroad. >> senator, what was this hearing about today? was it about getting and finding solutions or something else? >> listen, to me, this was simply about politics, right, about two-thirds of the republicans that asked questions asked questions about a handful of tv appearances by susan rice. the fact is if republicans asked just a small percentage of the questions that they've been asking about these television appearances about the war in iraq, we wouldn't be talking about saving four lives, we would be talking about saving 4,000 lives. and so i'm glad she's being as transparent as she has been. but it's about time to focus on something bigger than this. >> senator, you have access to these intelligence materials. did you learn anything today? was there any new information that came out today? >>
to stop donating money to the scouts. a $50 billion disaster aid measure for victims of hurricane sandy moved toward final approval this evening in the u.s. senate. the house passed the bill two weeks ago over the opposition of some conservatives. they wanted offsetting spending cuts to avoid adding to the nation's debt. democrat tom harkin of iowa is the latest member of the u.s. senate to say he's retiring. harkin announced saturday that he won't seek reelection in 2014. he cited his age: he's 73, and would be 81 at the end of another term. harkin was first elected in 1984. his signature legislative work is the 1990 americans with disabilities act. the city of santa maria in southern brazil was in mourning today for 231 people killed in a weekend nightclub fire. police said they'd detained three people in connection with the blaze and were on the hunt for a fourth. we have a report narrated by neil connery of independent television news. >> reporter: the most painful journey has begun. family after family carefully carry those they lost to the funerals of the nightclub fire victims be
because it was in the senate version of sandy and it was not put in to the senate -- the house version of sandy. so no, we cannot -- we cannot move money we already have to address the needs and deficiencies that the arb has recommends we do. >> well, i would just echo the comments that have been made already by this committee and by you that this is action that we need to get moving on immediately because we still have people at risk around the world. we need to take the action that's going to ensure their security. so i would certainly urge the chairman and ranking member to move the committee to do everything we can to make this happen. and i want to go back to something that the secretary sni said because i asked about the cooperation between the department of defense and state. and what the situation was on the ground before the benghazi attack in terms of the placement of our military in the region. he talked about the unprecedented cooperation between state and defense in response to benghazi. but i wonder if you could talk about how we ensure that this is a standard way of doin

that none of the changes would have done a darn thing about aurora, colorado or sandy hook, that's he demeaning, to suggest to americans we're going to take away your liberties and further infringe on your ability to own a particular type of gun and we know that it's not going to change the murders of americans that happen. >> megyn: i think that tone he struck, don't patronize your opposition because they seem to have heart felt beliefs on this issue. obama's been criticized for not getting that. when we went it break we played the sound bite of him saying the only reason you're seeing the long lines for the gun stores right now, because people are trying to gin up their own ratings or their own profits. i mean, president clinton, i presume, is not trying to do that. there are people who really genuinely believe this is an infringement on their constitutional rights and does the left risk alienate that, not just the left, but gun control people, by not acknowledging that's a real heart felt belief? >> look, i come from gun hunting, we had the first day of gun hunting off. >> megyn: w

. >> certainly it was a tragedy, benghazi was a tragedy but when you put her up there with 9/11 and sandy hook, and aurora and dozens of others that is just hyperbole, and that's what he is known for. i like rand but he just gets a little whacky sometimes. >> stephanie: yeah a little whack-a doodle. john mccain said that chris stevens spoke to him directly about needing more security. did he do something? pass on the information? or keep it to himself? did he bring the information to the state department? that was an odd moment. right? excuse me you are the head of the armed services committee. >> of course. and she raised that point in a very productive way. so clearly this was not anything that was on any member's radar screen to appoint d which they actually took action in any way. >> stephanie: right. >> so the whole scenario is just an embarrassment, i think. and fortunately i think hilary embarrassed them even more yesterday. >> stephanie: yeah absolutely. i was hoping she would open with i got your freakin' benghazi flu right here. but she is classier than i am. >> yeah. th

sandy. tens of thousands of families still displaced or lack the proper heat to deal with the cold. you may remember the senate did approve the full $60 billion relief package back in december but then the house took recess and did nothing. house speaker john boehner called a vote under pressure. once congress reconvened the first week in january first they approved the $9 billion then the additional $50 billion two weeks later. the vote in the senate is on the remaining plus $50 billion. we're back after the break. stay with us. armed with the facts, and the arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have the data and i want them to have the passion. but it's also about telling them, you're put on this planet for something more. i want this show to have an impact beyond just informing. an impact that gets people to take action themselves. as a human being, that's really important. this is not just a spectator sport. what we need are people prepared for the careers of our new economy. by 2025 we could have 20 million jobs without enough college graduates to f

try to spend their money in a wiser, built-to-last kind of way. that's what the sandy supplemental allows. it also allows the state to draw down a portion of its hazard mitigation funding from fema in order to leverage mitigation opportunities earlier in the construction process. in the old days, it would take 18-36 months for funding to become available in some instances to rebuild a school. that's too long. can you imagine a community going three years, you know, without even getting their school started? i mean, i realize that sometimes it takes a long time to build things, but you don't want to just wait three years before you start. so the way that we do it now without spending any more money, it's just allowing them to -- the federal government to push out some of the front money to the locals, they can then get started and of course they will reimburse the federal government. so that is a very smart reform that's in there. in addition, we also provide grants on the basis of a reliable fixed estimate for expedited removal of storm debris. this approach will be faster, cheaper
